Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog

Public Corruption in Chester County, PA

I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

The Republicans want a world without unions.

I know from my parents what that world is. My father worked in the steel mill 70 hours a week. 12 hours a day 5 days a week and 10 hours on Saturday. Unless he “worked an extra”. Working an extra was a regular 12 hour day, time for dinner, and another 12 hours “extra” and then a regular 12 hour day. That’s doing very dangerous work 36 hours in a row. He sometimes had to work two 36 hour stretches a week. 
My mother worked 12 hours a day in the silk mills after her father died when she was 14 years old. They needed children to get into the small gears in the machines.
The 40 hour work week, vacations, overtime pay, weekends and the American Middle Class are the products of unions.
Wealthy Ultraconservative gangsters like the Charles and David Koch are using Republican Whores like Governor Scotty Walker and former AG Alberto Gonzales’s boy, Chris Christie to eliminate unions and the American Middle Class.
The Republicans are entirely about money and power. They are building a two class society, a gangster ruling class and a poor class; a new kind of Dark Ages.
